Home Made Ice Tea

My home made ice tea was such a success yesterday - and I even had a taste thought it was lovely - that I thought to add it to my recipes here for you all to have a go.  Now, this recipe is best made the night before as you'll need it chilled just right to drink during the long hot days of Summer.


Two teabags of decaf Green Tea (or your favourite)
2 1/2 tablespoons raw sugar 
4 slices of lime cut into halves
Boil a full kettle

Get a heatproof bowl and pour the boiling water into it and put the tea bags into it for 10 minutes (or longer if you like your tea nice and strong).  After the bags are taken out, add the sugar.  Now it sounds like a lot, but you have remember that this will dissolve and sweeten the tea; making it taste nice once it's cold.  Let the tea go cold for a few hours then ladle it into a jug, add the lime slices and cover it over with plastic cling wrap and put it into the fridge overnight.  The next day, pour it out for your visitors - or yourself - and enjoy it in the long hot Summer.  It's lovely, sweet and refreshing on any hot muggy day.
